There’s also a lovely aqua in the range … but I don’t have that one.February 10 073 I’ve also made it with handmade handles as opposed to the ‘bought’ ones above. This time in the more neutral Moda “Legacy” Collections for a Cause.February 10 165 Pretty little pleats ……..February 10 157 held together with sparkly pink beads.February 10 071or earthy brown ones. February 10 164You can make your own handles or buy some of these gorgeous braided handles ……February 10 072It’s a generous sized bag – 13” tall, 15” wide with an oval base 8” x 11” – February 10 128 You can fit LOADS of stuff in there :o).

Both bags are on the one pattern and I’m going to give away 3 of these patterns, printed or PDF, whichever format you prefer ~ just leave a comment on this post and I’ll pick 3 winners on Sunday 21st February. I’m sure I’ll find some extra yummy bits and pieces to pop in with your prize too ;o). No extra jobs for extra entries … just one entry per comment. Easy Peasy :o).

I love the bags. I think my fabourite is the pink and brown with the pink braided handles but it is so hard to choose as they are all so gorgeous. I am a bit of a bag queen myself - are you? Yvonne
